4.65.030 Source of resources.

(1) The initial contribution to the cumulative reserve fund for information technology projects will be made in 1989 from fund balance within the current expense fund.

(2) Additional contributions shall consist of:

(a) current expense monies which have been provided by the collection of revenues in amounts greater than anticipated in the budget and which result in a higher than anticipated fund balance as provided in SCC 4.65.040(1), and

The director’s report will be prepared after the current expense fund has been closed and audited by the state examiner and will include an analysis of fund balance as it relates to fund balance goals.

(3) The financial resources in the information technology fund may accumulate from year to year until such time as the council by ordinance appropriates all or part of the resources in the fund for the purposes specified in SCC 4.65.020.
